In this week’s tutorial post, we’ll discuss how to add stamps to PDFs using PDFelement for easier reviewing, collaboration, and teamwork.
Stamps are a great collaboration tool, no matter how you use them. Whether you want to let your team know when their drafts have been approved, or show them where to sign on a document, you can clear up a lot of miscommunication through the use of stamps as an annotation tool.
PDFelement offers a wide range of default stamps for users. You can access these by navigating to the “Comment” tab and selecting “Stamps.” This will display a drop-down menu of different stamp options.
Once you click on the stamp you would like to use, you will be able to place it anywhere on your document. You will also be able to change the sizing to suit your needs. However, it’s important to note that there are some properties you can can’t change, such as color.
But what about custom stamps?
In some circumstances, you might want to create your own stamp, whether it’s a fancy seal of approval or just a stamp that doesn’t come with default settings.
To do this, head over to the “Comment” tab and click on “Create Stamp > Create Custom Stamp.”
Your custom stamp will need to be an image file. You can’t directly type text to create a stamp.
Once you create your stamp, it will show up under “custom” for easy access in the future.
You can also later manage your stamps to edit or delete previous custom stamps you created.
Here is an example of a custom stamp I created, which I named “Approved.” Here, I’m able to Create a new stamp, edit the current one, or delete it. In this scenario, “Edit” just means swapping out the photo. The name remains the same.
